I'm getting a wrinkled fold from top to bottom on the right hand side of each of my copies. When I open the top of the machine I see gears that line that side of the interior of the copier, are they the problem?

Re: Cannon PC920 I'm getting wrinkled copies
When paper is jamming inside the printer is either because one of the traction gears is stuck, because of a foreign object inside, or because something has broken.
Tru removing toner/drumkit unit, and remove carefully all peces of paper inside.
Unplug printer from main. Once toner is out look for foreign objects, efentually with the help of a friend you can turn printer upside down and shake it gently (careful not to damage the printer), this will reveal the presence of lose parts inside.
Sometimes it is necessary to disassemble the printer to fix this kind of problems, in that case, call a technician.

This mayclear the ink absorber problem.
There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printerwhere the ink head move. To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the inkcartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer. Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place itinside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of theprinter to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissuea few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber. Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.
There may be a staple, paper clip or other obstruction in the paper path. Get a flashlight and look carefully at the left side - top and bottom of the ADF. I've also had problems with the guide located to the left of the glass being damaged and catching the edge of the paper in the curved part.
If the paper does not completely eject, press the paper with folded side paper
button, then open the printer cover and remove the paper. Also, check
the Paper Size setting in your application or printer software. If the paper is wrinkled when it comes out, it may be damp or too thin. Load a new stack then try to print again. You can also try to check the printer alignment and the printer setting.
